6mpg is pretty low even if towing. What trailer weight? and how much time idling vs drive. In city lot of idling, but I would expect way over 6mpg.

Sorry I should clarify.. My 6.0 PSD drops at idle not towing, nothing. It will gradually go down let's say driving I'm at 12 stop at a light 11.9.........11.8..........11.7... You get what I'm saying.. Is it normal?

Right after you reset the meter, yes it is. You are burning fuel and not going anywhere. I think I heard that an hour idling is like drive @33 miles.
